Symposium Spotlight features educational sessions that were presented as part of the 20th Annual (virtual) Diversity Symposium, held October 19-23, 2020.
Presented by Madeline Harvey and Matthew Harvey
The body is a powerful communicator. Gestures, timing, and movement dynamics can speak volumes. Husband and wife co-choreographers bring awareness to body language with an opportunity to view and react to recorded dance works. Between each carefully curated excerpt, participants are guided to respond with their impressions and interpretations. Providing space for viewers to express their perspectives, allows for dialogue to emerge, which acknowledges diverse identities, and compels reflection on how one’s own body might communicate racial biases. Session will begin with gentle movement activities designed for in-home participation and will end with an open Q&A.
